Just Ask!

I feel blessed lately that God has been opening a lot of doors for me – as my good friend Carol says, “putting just the right person with just the right message in just the right place at just the right time.” But I realize it’s because I’ve been asking. This morning I listened to my interview on the EWTN Network radio show on Sirius XM 130 – “The Sonrise Morning Show” with Brian Patrick – I asked if I could be on the show and sent him a book – that simple!; then I went to work and called Mark Diccoco who owns several “St. Jude’s” Gift Shops in PA (Malvern Retreat House, Philly and Havertown) and he said he ordered a dozen books (all because I went on a spiritual retreat and asked); then tonight I saw my old friend Kathy who owns Kathy’s Corner Shop in North East, MD – and asked if she could carry my books – and she wants to order a dozen and have me do a book signing. So there’s no magic secret (I always was jealous of other authors thinking there was) to “marketing” your books – you just have to ask, be receptive to others, and be thankful when opportunities do come your way. Oh, and I guess people have to actually like the book. And for that I am most humbly grateful! (Thanks God!)

    …..just ask works the same when it is a thank you – just say thank you – for your inspiration…
